Conco is seeing an increase in building projects coming out of the ground and being planned for the near future. To help us meet the demand, we have made significant capital investments to increase capacity at our rebar fabrication facilities and purchased new equipment. We have also expanded our geographic footprint which now includes having a large presence in Washington State.
One of the projects we are involved with there is 815 Pine, a luxury, 40-story apartment building adjacent to the historic Paramount Theatre in downtown Seattle. The Pines is the tallest residential tower to be built in the downtown area in the last several years. It is expected to open for early occupancy in November 2014 and should be completely finished by April of 2015.
The building is being constructed by the Holland Partner Group, and as part of the team, Conco will perform the concrete services. The job involves doing all of the cast-in-place concrete, rebar, formwork, shotcrete and concrete pumping for this signature property.
Since the location of the building is right in the heart of downtown Seattle, the small footprint with a minimal lay-down area and a five-day form cycle presents some challenges. To ensure jobsite safety and to meet the aggressive schedule, Conco will use a perimeter protection system as well as a perimeter netting system.
Once completed, 815 Pine will have 386 apartments with 265 parking stalls on 9 levels. Apartments will vary from 450-square-foot studios to 1,250-square-foot three-bedroom units, and in the New York tradition, will have a 24-hour doorman. The total size of the building is 488,193 gross square feet, and is designed and constructed to achieve LEED Silver status.
For over 50 years, Conco has been providing premium concrete services and is one of the most trusted concrete contractors in Seattle. We partner with clients on every project from the pre-construction stage right through to final completion to maximize efficiency and ensure goals and budgets are met. Our concrete services include commercial, educational, parking and other construction development as well as public works projects.
